Player Analysis

The Good

  • Arm Talent – Solid arm strength with ability to make downfield throws with velocity. Can adjust and put touch on passes as needed.
  • Ball Placement – Keeps receivers out of precarious situations, helping them avoid big hits and allowing them to gain YAC.
  • Pocket Movement – Recognizes when to step up or slide to his left or right in the pocket.
  • Mechanics – Above average mechanics for a prototypical pocket passer.

The Bad

  • Durability/Injury History – Multiple surgeries on his right knee, all of which appear to be related to the same issue.
  • Mobility – May be related to injury history. Zero threat as a runner. Negative rushing yards during collegiate career.
  • Progressions – Struggles if first read isn’t open. Will focus on pre-snap read too long and miss other open targets.
  • Blitz Recognition – Dealt mostly with 3-man fronts in college and rarely had to deal with constant pressure from defenses. Struggles to identify extra rushers.

Overall Assessment

PRE-DRAFT: Carson Strong has one of the best arms in this year’s draft class. He can launch the ball deep with precision and find receivers in tight windows. He played in an air raid style offense so he can clearly throw deep. However, there are two major red flags working against him: injury history and athleticism. When a player has had 4+ surgeries/procedures on the same knee, that’s likely to scare anyone. Strong has been dealing with residual effects from an injury he suffered over 5 years ago which doesn’t instill much confidence in his ability to stay off the injury report in the NFL. As a result of his injuries, Strong’s mobility and athleticism are nonexistent. He will need a good offensive line in the NFL to have any sort of chance at success since he is unable to extend plays with his legs. While I do like his arm talent, the injuries pretty much remove him from my draft board.
